Here's a real event for you, but first a little background information, currently 19, in university asnd have no real issues with anything, I
consider myself incredably fortunate.
A few years ago when I was maybe 16 I had experienced what at the time seemed like a completely elogical unexplainable event that to put it frankly,
scared the living ***** out of me.
I had come home from school early and decided to go have a nap seeing as I had a long borring day, I tend to fight my "demons" in my sleep and in
day dreams (what I mean by that is my fears or issues I contemplate, metaphorically speaking, I have no belief in demons, god, devil or any of that
and am in no way relegious to any extent).
So I was day dreaming about flying, I was in 3rd person view looking at myself flying in (the only way to describe would be a fly by camera in movies)
a way that pressured my fear and anxiety level, I was flying backwards, upside down in a endless corridor with endless rows of pillars and what seemed
to be endless levels and I would glide to lower levels untill I reached the basement, which (just remember this is my imagination, just a mental movie
so to speak) was starting to scare be because flying upside down and backwards symbolised the fear of uncertainty and having no self control or in
simple terms being vulnrable. Once I was flying on the lowest level there where cracks on the floor and beneath was a bottemless empty drop fiilled
with fear and what I considered hell. and as I flew closer to the floor I felt so scared but I kept imaging it, testing myself trying to over come my
fears, and suddenly, I couldn't take it anymore I opened my eyes and bam, I was paralyised.
Could you imagine my fear as I awoke from this dream, what had happened is I was concentrating so hard that I actually fell asleep and was officially
dreaming, and when I woke I couldn't move, it was like as if something had grabbed me by the neck and was pulling me into the bed, I was trying my
hardest to move and yell for help but it was useless. To cut a long story short once I snapped out of it I was dumbfounded, I could not for the life
of me understand what just happened, so I did it again, started the same imagination and wouldn't you know it after what seemed like 3 minutes I was
I spent many hours trying to figure out what happened, I got the relegious point of view, the your crazy point of view but eventually I found out it
was sleep paralysis and it made complete sense, no demons, no evil spirits, no witches or aliens, just the power of my mind waking before it could
physically do so.
Which brings me to my next point, people are so under educated that it is dissapointing to hear certain stories, and without discredeting anyone else
I would like to put forth a concept, that concept is.
For every action, there is a physical reaction, to live our bodies must do millions of things we are not aware of things that can be seen, touched,
tested, measured and eventually justified. Now sleep paralysis is simply a chemical imbalance in the brain so to speak, without getting into neurology
or anything like that, we can basically understand that for us to think a neuron must spark for us to see our eyelids must open now to think a demon
or an unknown entity is attacking you based of ignorance is just silly is it not? when we don't know something we have to replace it with some sort
of "fact" that justifies it or we would go into chaos from fear of uncertainty, now I think that's sad, that instead of imbracing a simply concept
that your lower brain stem designated to motor movements can still be asleep while your frontal cortex activates, people replace it with silly things
like aliens or demons, face it your genetic make up makes you prone to sleep paralysis and your lack there of your body would lead you to believe
otherwise. Just to clarify I don't doubt aliens, in fact I think it's silly to doubt in the vast universe out there that we are alo
